verse 10 overdoses. >> it's ready to administrator, go up one nostril. >> must, must, have narcam if you have an addict. you must. because the whole trick of it is, to keep them alive until they finally get it. >> and you should note, in the initial rescue video, no one called 911, it's imperative, whether you have the drug or not, you've got to call 911. thanks for watching. around the world starts now. a gunman opens fire, killing a tsa agent and wounding three other people. at los angeles international airport. today we hear from a friend of the shooter. at the moment that they're seeing this on the tv. their third roommate comes back. saying i just dropped off paul
at l.a.x., he didn't with a to go alone. they just knew. i think you just dropped off paul to a shooting. >> police were just minutes from stopping the attack. and should tsa officers be armed? the shooting at l.a.x. has some pushing for tsa to be armed. and edward snowden says british counterparts to the nsa are some of the worst offenders to government oversight. welcome to "around the world." police came within minutes of stopping the alleged l.a.x. shooter from heading to the airport before friday's rampage. one. new details we're learning today. this is from an exclusive interview with a woman who knows the suspect and his three roommates. 23-year-old paul ciancia is charged with murdering a tsa officer.
ciancia is in critical condition after being shot by police officers. the fbi says he set out to kill tsa employees, and now a woman who knows the suspect tells our miguel marquez, that one roommate, who had no idea what was going on, even drove him to the airport. >> he asked one of the roommates if he could have a ride to the airport. >> why did he need a ride? >> he said he was going back home. either that his dad was kind of sick and he had to deal with some family issues. >> did anyone ever see a ticket? >> no. >> he did mention what day. that morning, he doesn't knock and says, i need to leave. can you take me now. >> did you ever express any hatred toward the government or the tsa? >> he thought that the tsa abused their power. >> police officers showed up at ciancia's apartment about 45 minutes after he took off to the airport. well his father was back in new
jersey, had asked the police to check in on his son, after the family got a disturbing text message, including one that indicated that something bad might happen. so we're talking about 45 minutes between life and death for the victims of the shooting. if the police officers had gotten to the suspect's apartment just a little sooner, the attack might have been stopped. cnn's law enforcement analyst ton fuentes joins us now. i know this is an unusual situation. it's not often that police have that kind of window, that amount of time to intervene in potential lay deadly shooting scenario. what was the text message and what was the warning? >> well, i think, suzanne, from what they're saying about it, is that police were notified there was something wrong with him, and they should check on his well-being. or he had said in his messages, that something bad was going to happen. now imagining or speculating
about what the police would do, had they gotten to his apartment before he left and, find if he a apeered healthy, normal and was fairly articulate, i don't know what the next step would have or could have been for the police beyond that. other than to call the parents back and say we checked on him and he's fine. an then he's doing fine and normal. just depressed or upset. you know, like many people often are. i don't know if there was anything in the messages to tell the police he had an access to an assault rifle or whether it was his rifle or someone else's and he was capable of using the type of weaponry with multiple magazines and bullets. but it's highly speculative to say that the police could have stopped this thing. they could have got tln early and talked to him and thought he was okay. and the next day gn to the airport, you just don't know. >> i want to tell you, attorney general eric holder just weighed
in on the l.a.x. shooting. i want you to listen to what he said. >> close-up of the tsa is to insure that people can board planes safely. take flights safely. the responsibility for protecting airport security is not a tsa function. but something that i think we need to certainly examine, given ha happened in los angeles. >> so tom, he's referring to the potential here, the notion that some are suggesting arming the tsa. do you think that's a good idea? >> the only question about doing that. the tens of thousands of tsa employees. if you start trying to train every one of them, that's going to require classroom training, training on the range. and then recurring training. it's not something you do once and forget about. it's very expensive problem significancings you might have to hire many, many more people to make up for the time that some of the people are going to lose while doing that kind of training. and now you're talking, you know, you're introducing many,
many more weapons into an airport environment. with people who probably are not going to have quite as much training or ability as the local police officers who get expensive training. so you know, the question in this is i think for my mind, isn't so much whether tsa should be armed. think the decisions is for them not to be. the question if they're not armed and if the police know it, where are the police? it is incumbent on the police to have enough officers there, to back them up. because those tsa officers are the first line of inspection before someone goes to the boarding and departure areas of aircraft. that's the issue here, that ciancia had time to shoot the first tsa officer. take an escalator up, take an escalator down, shoot again and there's still no officer in sight. >> we want to take a moment to talk about the victims of the
shooting. tsa officer durado hernandez was shot at point-blank range as he stood near his checkpoint in terminal 3 at l.a.x. he is the first tsa officer to die in the line of duty. his wife said he took pride in serving the american people. and hernandez as we see there, had two children. two other tsa officers, james spear and tony griggsby were wounded, but are out of the hospital. and a traveler who was shot in the leg, still in the hospital and listed now in fair condition. edward snowden, the man wanted for leaking nsa secrets has angered u.s. officials again. this time he is releasing now a manifesto calling out the u.s. and britain for their spying programs. his manifesto was published in a german magazine. and he writes, his actions have prompted debate and that the u.s. and britain are among the worst surveillance offenders.
snowden is living now in moscow, under asylum from the russian government. that's where we pick up the story with diana magna, who is also gauging reaction from the germans. >> there's a growing chorus of voices in germany calling for edward snowden to be granted asylum there. there's talk also about a parliamentary investigation into the tapping of chancellor angela merkel's phone, where snowden will be called on to testify. he said he's willing to testify. but he'd have to be granted asylum. it's possible of course for him to provide testimony from russian soil, but that might go against the grounds for his asylum. president putin has made it quite clear that he's a free man, but he can do nothing more that will damage u.s. interests. the german government spokesman said asylum is out of the question, that u.s./german relations must come first. suzanne? >> all right. thank you. now if edward snowden was attempting to get people to talk about spying, he has certainly done that. everybody from people at their
jobs and coffee shops, world leaders have an opinion. now the head of google, eric schmidt is weighing in. speaking out about the nsa snooping and the users of course, he was interviewed
in our hong kong bureau. here's what he tout our christi lou stout. >> it's terrible policy. as an example, in the united states, it appears as though, according to the documents, that the national security agency tracked everyone's phone calls. in order to identify 300 suspects. we had to track according to the disclosures, 300 million people's activities. it doesn't seem right. it seems like overreach. over and over again this needs to be organized. there are legitimate uses of this. this is clearly overstep. in this particular case, we assume that there was monitoring between different computer systems. with enkrepgcryptioencryption. we can stop it. >> google is calling this
there are legitimate areas of espionage, yes, we have to find the bad guys, but it doesn't mean to say we can't find some kind of balance vis-a-vis all our citizens and all of those people who think that they're being tapped in and for which we find this unacceptable. so that's the debate that's going on in europe right now. whether it's in germany and spain or other places. having said that, they all know very well that there is a big link of intelligence-sharing and you know, between each other and with the nsa. >> do they, do they, how do they see snowden? do they think of him as a traitor? do they think he has provided some sort of public service to the world by revealing these kind of, the methods that the u.s. gets its information, its intelligence, sensitive intelligence? >> it fends on who you speak to. obviously the united states calls him a traitor and says what he's done is stealing the documents. they say that he needs to be held accountable in great britain, u.s. very close ally, they also don't think that this is helpful. prime minister cameron has spoken against the leaking of
all this material. it depends on where you, where you sort of seek information and description of what snowden has done. you heard just now from diana magna, as angry as the germans are, they are not willing to grant snowden the asylum. because they say the relationship with the u.s. comes first, as angry or as accommodating as putin has been, allowing snowden into moscow and saying he's a free man, he's put some conditions on it, saying you can't further damage u.s. interests. so there's a balancing act going on all over the place. also coming up around the world -- >> do not use crack cocaine, nor am i an addict of crack cocaine? >> that was toronto's mayor back in may after journalists claimed to see him smoking crack cocaine in a video. well now he is apologizing for what he calls, stupid things.
then the president uses twitter and it helps start a revolution in the middle east. coming up, how you can own a piece of it. twitter now going public. plus, what the world needs now, is it nuclear energy? well that is what a stunning new documentary claims. we're going to talk with one of the men behind the cnn documentary -- pandora's promise, what an anti-nuclear power attorney has to say about that as well. across america people are taking charge

crack. now rob ford admits he made a lot of mistakes. but other than drinking too much, he has not specified exactly what those mistakes are. and even though he's apologizing, he still says he is not going to resign. paula newton is covering the story from ottawa. paula, he made these comments, appearing on a radio station in toronto. how does he explain the video, first of all? >> well, believe it or not, suzanne, he's come a long way since basically claim there was no video. that's what his staff told me months ago. he said there was a video, but he was not smoking drugs on it he said he won't say that, because the video is part of a criminal investigation. i have to tell you, suzanne, it made international headlines, i was in europe over the weekend on assignment. it was front-page news there. people cannot believe that a mayor under criminal investigation in this way is still in office and is hanging on to his job. i want to you listen to a mild
mea culpa that mayor ford made yesterday. >> i'm not -- perfect. i have made mistakes. i have made mistakes and all i can do right now is apologize. i'm not going to sit here and say, i'm never going to drink again. that's not realistic. everything in moderation, rob. >> everything in moderation. >> you know, suzanne, is talking about getting ahold of his drinking and there's video and pictures of him being a little bit drunk at certain events. that does not address what is a krlg investigation. a legal video of stills coming out. last week in a court case that clearly show the mayor basically involved with people that have very serious charges against them. drug possession charges, drug trafficking charges and even extortion. it's a very tangled web and rob ford only apologized for a little bit of it. >> paula, he's still under
police investigation. he has acknowledged some wrongdoing. but he's still going to run for re-election, is that right? >> absolutely. he's not acknowledged any criminal wrongdoing. he's kind of taunting the police. he's in charge of the police department, he's got their budget right in front of him right now. he said i want everybody to see that video, assuming that it's going to vindicate him. that it does not show him smoking crack cocaine. in the meantime, unrepentant to what this has done to toronto. it's made world headlines, a distraction, when there are many other concerns in canada's largest city. he said i'm running again next fall. and even from people close to him who want to see him redeem himself through this, many are saying look, he's going to have to do so much more and show through his actions in the coming months that he's a responsible caretaker for toronto. >> we'll see what the voters decide. soccer fans out of control
in serbia how they started this huge fire during a heated match. so ally bank has a raise your rate cd that won't trap me in a rate. that's correct. cause i'm really nervous about getting trapped. why's that? uh, mark? go get help! i have my reasons. look, you don't have to feel trapped with our raise your rate cd. if our rate on this cd goes up, yours can too. oh that sounds nice. don't feel trapped with the ally raise your rate cd. ally bank. your money needs an ally. and our giant idaho potato truck is still missing. so my dog and i we're going to go find it. it's out there somewhere spreading the good word about idaho potatoes and raising money for meals on wheels. but we'd really like our truck back,
fiery none stragss against the u.s. today in iran's capital, tehran. iranians tore apart and burned a u.s. flag at the site of the former u.s. embassy. the protests marked the 34th anniversary of the 1979 u.s. embassy takeover by iranian students in the early days of the islamic revolution. the streets were packed with thousands of protesters.
it is believed to be one of the largest anti-u.s. protests in years. more hardliners in iran are criticizing its relatively new president, hassan rouhani. four suspects in the deadly african westgate mall pleaded guilty. it's raising bizarre new questions. all four suspects are believed to be from somalia. authorities say two had fake identification cards from another country. so authorities aren't even sure of two of the defendants' real names. somali terror group, al shabaab claim responsibility for ate tack. in which 70 people were killed. we're tracking the case in nairobi. >> i'm here in kenya, where over a month after the westgate terror attack that shocked and outraged kenyans, four men finally appeared in court today to face charges of supporting,
commissioning and harboring terrorists. although the four men are believed to be somali, none of them have i.d.s that check out in fact two were carrying fake kenyan identification. a fact that's led to the firing of several kenyan immigration officials and a broadening investigation, back to you. >> and secretary of state, john kerry, is in saudi arabia now. this is the second stop of the middle east tour. now kerry is trying to mend fences with some allies. high on the agenda are concerns about the u.s. reaching out to iran, and what to do about the civil war raging in syria. there have also been differences between u.s. and saudi arabia over egypt. the u.s. froze hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to egypt. while saudi arabia supports egypt's new military's backed government. and still to come, cleveland kidnapping survivor, michele knight is now breaking her silence. she and two other young women

intelligence officials knew all about. >> he had been asking me for money. he about been asking me for equipment. and i had been giving him what he asked for. >> why? >> that was to gather intelligence information and to maintain the works in somalia. >> and this essentially builds him up because he has money, he can provide -- >> heart. >> money and equipment wasn't all storm gave creamer. he was introducing two major al qaeda franchises. >> this is an email sent, the 23rd of february, 2010. and he's asking me to pass on an email to creamer. >> these emails and dozens of others storm says, evidence he connected creamer to al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. aqap. to the american cleric, anwar al awlaki killed in an air strike last year. analysts say creamer and anwar

she was locked in the home of the late ariel castro. and martin savidge is joining us with a preview. tell us essentially, why now and what is she revealing? >> hello, suzanne. >> well why now? 32-year-old michelle knight is the oldest of the three girls held captive. she was also held the longest. she has been the most outspoken. but this is really the first time that she is talking and describing the conditions under which she had to struggle. and it is horrifying to hear. take a listen to this excerpt from dr. phil. >> so he gets you in this room. what did he tie you up with? >> one of those orange extension cords. i was tied up like a fish. and ordered me on the wall. that's the only way i can describe it. i was hanging like this. my feet and i was tied by my neck and my arms. with the extension cord going like that.
>> so he tied your hands and feet. and also around your neck. and hung you. >> just so awful. >> mean we had a sense of this of course from the investigation and the details that began to come out but to hear it from michelle knight to hear it from her own experience, is so powerful this young woman is such an inspiration to so many people. because if you remember, we saw her at the sentencing of ariel castro and she delivered that very powerful condemnation against him. she was also there, as you see at the demolition of his home. she has been empowered and come out of this so strong and so inspiring. >> is this part of her healing process, to talk about the details, to talk about what she endured? >> well i'm not a psychological expert. this is something that she's deemed is part of her emotional
healing. this is something that she's openly spoken to. i've talked to her and been with her a couple of times. she's made no bones about the fact that she would like to make this kind of her life's message now. that she could be an inspirational speaker. that there can be good derived out of the horrors that she endured. and that's just a sample. >> what about the other young women? how are they doing? >> they're doing very well. we're talking about amanda berry and gina dejesus, they've been nowhere near as public as we've seen from michelle knight. we know they're working on a book deal and the book deal is currently being marketed. their attorneys make no bones that they're trying to generate an income. as they say, their clients are so psychologically damaged, so physically damaged, they'll never be able to have normal lives this is creating a trust out of four people. because there was a child born of that captivity. >> martin, thank you so much. she's just incredible so brave and so difficult just to hear what she's been through. but you are empowered to know that she's on the other side of
this. >> yeah. it is so nice to see her because of what she is and what she's become. >> all right. thank you, martin. appreciate it want to let our viewers know, anderson cooper will sit down with dr. phil about this exclusive interview with michelle knight, you might want to watch that tonight on "ac 360" 8:00 p.m. eastern. and pandora's promise, you'll want to see this, a documentary that airs exclusively on cnn this week. it really takes a look at the nuclear energy's impact around the world. and the controversy around it as well. >> assuming that the world continues to develop, and that china and india and brazil become rich countries over the next half-century or century. how much energy is the world going to use? when you start running those numbers, it's sobering. >> the debate over the survival

a man who doesn't stand still. but jim has afib, atrial fibrillation -- an irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. that puts jim at a greater risk of stroke. for years, jim's medicine tied him to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine. [ gps ] proceed to the designated route. not today. [ male announcer ] for patients currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. xarelto® is just one pill a day taken with the evening meal. plus, with no known dietary restrictions,
jim can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, without talking to the doctor who prescribes it as this may increase the risk of having a stroke. get help right away if you develop any symptoms like bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto® with aspirin products, nsaids or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto® if you have abnormal bleeding. xarelto® can cause bleeding, which can be serious, and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto® and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is not for patients with artificial heart valves. jim changed his routine. ask your doctor about xarelto®. once a day xarelto® means no regular blood monitoring -- no known dietary restrictions. for more information and savings options,

"pandora's promise" focuses on those once against using nuclear energy, but now believe it is should power our growing energy needs so will energy power save the planet? just list ton part of this. >> it turns out that the united states has been buying up nuclear warheads from the russians. for over ten years now. 16,000 nuclear warheads. and we're recycling. all of these nuclear warheads into energy. electricity. nuclear power. so nuclear power is doing more to denuclear weaponize the world
than any other thing that we do. poetically, it's rather beautiful. the very things that were designed to blow up our cities, are now lighting up our cities. >> well i want to bring in michael shellenberger who tells his story in the film. of becoming a pro nuclear for nuclear power. he's joining us from berkeley, california, the president of the breakthrough institute, new york. we have dale brick, who joins us, the senior attorney director of the natural resources defense council, energy and transportation program, an anti-nuclear group. we'll all seen this, it's controversial, it's fascinating to watch. and it really takes you through from the very beginning, the development of nuclear energy. michael, i want to start with you, one of the things that struck me about this is how personal this is. to many of the people who are in this documentary. and you've got the protester who opens up screaming that this is
a death industry, a cancer industry, a bomb-making industry. talking about nuclear industry. now you describe, you visit this power plant in high school. you later become a consultant for the green groups, fiercely against nuclear power. you change your mind. why. >> well we got clear about how much energy the world is going to consume over the next half-century and century. so most of the world is not rich. china, brazil, india, they're not asking our permission to use the earth's resources and to consume energy. so good estimate is somewhere between double amount of energy we consume by mid-century. triple and quadruple it by the end of the century. i love solar and wind. i always have, last year in the united states, solar provided less than .1% of our electricity. wind provides more, but whenever the subsidy that it depends on comes into question in congress, all new wind projects come to a halt.
nuclear provides 20% of our electricity in the united states. in some places like france it provides 80%. we have a long track record of using it. and once you get over a lot of the irrational fears that we have about it and read the literature, it's the safest alternative that we have to koe coal. >> dale, you watched this film and believe a lot of it is propaganda. you call it a love song to the nuclear power industry. specifically, what are the things you think are not accurate that speaks to you? >> yeah, well i mean nuclear is moving forward in some countries where, where the energy sector is centralized planned economy. but in this country, we really want the market to help choose the winners and losers, and the main facts that are absent in the film are the cause of nuclear power. the nuclear renaissance is not
being realized in this country. not because the government is stopping the individual power plants, but because the market is not choosing nuclear. since the movie came out, since the beginning of the year, since the movie was filmed, the industry itself is shutting five nuclear plants, purely for economic reasons. and it's scrapping plants to get more nuclear power from existing plants at another five locations. not because of ideology or bias, because of inability of nuclear to compete in the marketplace against cheaper, cleaner resources like energy efficiency and renewable energy. >> i want you to address this point. they talk about this as a humanitarian issue. that the more countries that have power, electricity, a steady flow of energy, they're able to power up clinics and schools. all of a sudden they have a refrigerator, they live longer. how to provide that kind of power? because we're not, we're not using less power.
we're not conserving energy, we're using more power. so where does the energy come from when you look at the needs of people around the world? >> suzanne -- it's a great question. what's happening around the world is that the world is moving heavily towards coal. and it's a little disingenuous for the nrdc, a major lobby, it's you know, each of the big environmental groups have budgets around $100 million a year. they have actively sought to block nuclear for the last several decades. it's a little disingenuous to hear david say it wasn't us, responsible for keeping nuclear at only 20%. in fact, if the wind, it's funny to hear her talk about wind and solar. if the subsidies for wind and solar came to an end, there would be no wind and solar deployment. and dale knows that. the world is going to coal and the alternatives are not actually solar and wind. the alternatives are more coal, or nuclear. and that's what this comes down
to. if you care about the climate, four of the world's top climate scientists yesterday, came out with an open letter to environmental groups. if environmental groups weren't in the way, why would the climate scientists send an open letter to environmental groups, including the nrdc, asking them to halt nuclear and support the development of a new generation. >> i got it get dale back in here. to at least answer michael's criticism there. >> yes, well i would love for him to answer the challenges of the costs, the economic challenges that the industry faces. but of course we want to solve global warming and stop the climate crisis in the cheapest, fastest way that we can. and that's why we're focused on energy efficiency and renewables as the best solution. but the solution is to internalize the pollution cost, especially the carbon pollution cost, which we have not done in this country. and allow resources to compete against one another. and if we do that, if nuclear compete against efficiency and renewables on a level playing field.
we're confident that they will continue to win as they have been doing over many years. not because of ideology or bias or because we're -- you know, '70s, radical who is don't read science. but because of market forces and technology, the way technology has developed. and these other resources are better. so why not have a level playing field and allow nuclear to compete against renewals, they're winning. >> we're running out of time. we'll continue the debate throughout the week because this is a fascinating discussion and it really is a very provocative program and we recommend that everybody see it and you guys have seen it, we've all seen it. at this point, pandora's promise airing thursday at 9:00 p.m. eastern. thanks to our guests, we appreciate you both weighing in. and coming up, the president uses it to start a revolution in the middle east. how you can own a piece of this. we're talking about twitter going public. then soccer fans out of control in serbia. how they started this huge fire during a heated match. ♪

stock at the initial price, between $23-25 a share. because most offerings will go to employees and big institutions. cnn's chief business correspondent, christine romans has the story. >> two major corporate stories, one of about a company, ascendant, twitter, and another about a company who is in decline, blackberry. first twitter, boosted the price of shares it will sell to the public to $25, from $23. it's a sign twitter sees big demand for its shares. for what promises to be a big day for the company's founders, who will take home hundreds of millions of dollars each. now the company plans to raise up to $1.8 billion by going public. insiders and big investors get the ipo price, likely wednesday. then ordinary investors, you and me, can start buying and selling the stock on thursday.
in most tech ipos, only about 20% of share goes to ordinary investors. it's why it pays to wait. remember facebook, the biggest tech ipo ever quickly became one of the biggest flops, the stock debuted at $38 a share. but three months later you could get it at half that price. right now the early wagering is that twtr shares, twitter, will rise when they start trading. but there's to way to know for sure. which brings me to blackberry. in 2008, blackberry stock traded at $147 a share. today? blackberry is in the single digits. big news this morning that blackberry has abandoned its plans to sell itself. it's in the hands of private equity investors, to figure out how to sal advantage what's left. the chief executive who tried to save the company is out, a new turn-around artist is in.
>> it may be too late for blackberry. what it means for blackberry is unknown, but it could be a big headache for corporate i.t. departments who still need to support these devices this is a company tale that will wind up in business school textbooks. soccer fans known for being passionate, but in serbia, things getting out of hand. all right. this is saturday's match between red star belgrade and partisan belgrade. fans starting this large fire in the stands, you see it there. red star took a 1-0 lead early in the game and partisan fans, they were growing restless, so they started throwing these flares. and eventually, multiple parts of the visitors section on fire.
fire crews eventually got control of the situation. and you know, really something else when you think about it. a lot of passion and hopefully nobody hurt in that incident. well thanks for watching "around the world." cnn news room starts now. right now, return to normal at los angeles international airport. three days after a fatal shooting. investigators there are looking for more clues in the attack and what led a lone gunman to target tsa officers. right now, the virginia and new jersey governors races, are making a final push for votes. we look at what tomorrow's elections could tell us about the 2016 presidential race. and right now, we're waiting for today's white house briefing to get under way. the press secretary jay carney likely to face more questions about obama care and the political tell-all book "double rap."
